  1. The numbers are obscured by the bracelet- on 12 o'clock, it says "Oyster Precision" between the lugs
  2. This is what happens when you cross breed a Fortis with a Rolex. Both the fortis leather and rubber fit perfect. What do you guys think? http://s991.photobucket.com/user/stonechild/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsbi9cudf0.jpg.html] [/url] http://s991.photobucket.com/user/stonechild/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsl2j9xo1e.jpg.html] [/url] http://s991.photobucket.com/user/stonechild/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpshbos4fqk.jpg.html] [/url] http://s991.photobucket.com/user/stonechild/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpscxebrjlj.jpg.html] [/url]
  3. On Zulu the case remains tight on my wrist, I guess on nato it should be okay as well since the Pelagos head isn't that heavy.
  4. Keep the Omegas and buy the Rolex that sings to your heart!! I just got the new 39mm Oyster perpetual and I'm loving it.
  5. I agree, not many of their competitors would have done it. It is nice to see that even if they can't (from a financial standpoint) embrace all of us watch lovers wishes and wants at least they are paying a little attention to what is said on one of my favourite websites. Also impressed that they addressed the "far east" issue, even though I really hate that we all have to put up with the gaudy demands of this market, I think they are brave to acknowledge that such a problem even exists. At least their aren't any IWCs with PCLs... yet
  6. I am also in the market for an IWC in the Toronto area. Very slim pickings here for AD. Looking for a double Chrono INGY titanium blue #'s. I am very well connected with other brand AD's as well but the best I've done regarding the IWC is 29%. I was in the States a few weeks ago and should have bought there. Tourneau came down 43% but with the exchange and taxes it didn't make sense. Still looking.
  7. What do you expect people to help you with? It's not authentic IWC, I doubt any parts in this piece were made by IWC, so I am unsure how to help you? If you want a free advise - if you are really into IWC, then please, please, please forget about wasting your money on that garbage, save up and buy something that was actually put together in Schaffhausen, there is a huge number of options out there for proper watches made anywhere between 1980-2000, and many can be had for little bit more than this monstrosity.
  8. That's a nice watch. It should bring you many years of enjoyment. Congrats on your new IWC!
  9. I said "feels" instead of "looks" because it actually looked OK on my wrist IMO, but it didn't feel terribly comfortable. It felt very chunky and top heavy. But for whatever reason, I still want one :)
  10. Given the other two watches you own, I think there would be more inspired choices than the Mark. It seems to me you might consider a chronograph - what about a Speedy Pro or Zenith El Primero or Tag 1887?
  11. I'm waiting for a watch I ordered from Marina / Amil June 19th. The magic word seems to be: PATIENCE.
  12. Thats what the middle says. I cant make out the engraving on the edge of the case back. Looks like its got a cool story behind it though hahaha.
  13. A few years back a group of coworkers and I decided to do a batch of commemorative watches related to our job. We settled on amphibias, purchased all 18 of them and had the dials printed over by a Spanish watchmaker that specializes in dials with a design that we ourselves made... The full story in the following link (albeit in spanish but you can get the gist of it...): De relojes y aeronaves... Reinaldo (from Gran Esferas, Granesferas restauración i creación de esferas de reloj en Barcelona desde 1950) did a great job! Regards, RC
